NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope is the world’s most expensive scientific instrument ever launched into space. At $10 billion, this complex and powerful telescope will explore distant exoplanets and see near to the beginning of time itself. Before its planned launch later this month, Scott Pelley gets an inside look at NASA’s flagship space telescope. What mysteries will it help humanity unravel? And what could go wrong?

When the U.S. military pulled out of Afghanistan in August, the Taliban immediately seized control, and the international community acted quickly – freezing Afghan assets and foreign aid to pressure the Taliban to negotiate. To date, those negotiations haven’t happened. Today, 38 million Afghans find themselves facing one of the worst humanitarian crises on the planet. Sharyn Alfonsi traveled to Afghanistan to discuss the crisis with one of the new Taliban ministers, talk with suffering families and meet with the humanitarian groups who have been left to pick up the pieces and negotiate with the Taliban to avert a global catastrophe.

Ashley Velie is the producer.


Jon Wertheim ventures to a 90-square mile jewel of land off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. Fogo Island’s population was decimated when its one and only industry, cod fishing, went into steep decline. Now, an eighth-generation Fogo Islander has returned home with deep pockets and a plan to bring the place and its people back.

Nathalie Sommer and Kaylee Tully are the producers.

DiscussPW is a mix of Pro Wrestling and Entertainment. The site was started in 2017 and has gone thru many changes over the years. Our main focus was events and tickets, but then the pandemic happened. We had to mix things up and will now be doing a lot more news. Events will still be covered, just as news instead of on a calendar. This site had an extensive events calendar, which we have moved away from. Pro wrestling has always been our main thing, we also do a lot of entertainment though. For example, we post movie trailers, tv previews and other kinds of news. We have a few discussions but strongly encourage comments on all of our posts. Be sure to keep things civil while commenting. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us above.
